Very informative tour of this major fort on the Maginot Line. Good WWII review from a French perspective. The walking tour underground was particularly interesting, although it may not be possible for those with mobility issues. To access the entrance down into the tour area, one must be able to walk a little distance up a sloped path, and be able to walk a fair 1.5 hours, without restroom facilities. An elderly member of our group was unable to complete this part of the visit. There is an old creaky elevator down into the underground, but for the general tours a stairway of 149 steps (both directions) is part of the tour. Do remember a jacket or sweater as it is about 10* Celsius below ground and quite damp. The cafe was adequate and restroom facilities are only available in the main part of the visitor center, not once you are underground. The tour guide we had was very pleasant, professional and full of information and able to answer any questions our group had in English. We arrived at 10 AM and were one of the first tour groups, and left by 1:30. Our reservation was for 10:30. A good time to go, as it was much busier when we were ready to leave. Most ages would enjoy this.
